The ceremony will be held at 3 pm on June 29 and attendance will be by invitation only due to the current regulations in force under the Disaster Risk Management Act. The service however, will be streamed live and contact information will be provided at a later date. This will be the first ordination since 2019 as one was not held in 2020 as a result of the pandemic.
Your prayers are requested for the persons to be ordained as well as for their families.
